Far filosofia con Socrate. I rischi della dialettica [Doing philosophy with Socrates: the risks of dialectic]

la Società Degli Individui 21:19-32 (2004)

L’abilità di Socrate a condurre gli altri, attraverso il dialeghesthai e l’elenchos, a purificarsi dalle false credenze e dalla presunzione di sapere ne ha fatto, secondo la vulgata, un maestro di consapevolezza critica, l’inventore di uno stile filosofico. Ma alcuni passi platonici suggeriscono che Socrate non era stato in grado di dissolvere completamente i dubbi che erano nati intorno a lui, processato nel 399 a.C. anche come corruttore dei giovani. L’articolo si domanda se veramente Socrate sia stato, dal punto di vista platonico, un maestro avveduto.Socrates’ ability in guiding others, through dialeghesthai and elenchos, to purify themselves from false beliefs and from the conceit of knowledge has made of him, according to vulgata, a teacher of critical awareness and the inventor of a philosophical style. Some Platonic passages, however, suggest that Socrates had not been able to dispel completely all the doubts that had arisen around himself, brought to trial in 399 a.C. with the charge of corrupting the young. The article argues whether Socrates really was, from a Platonic point of view, a shrewd teacher
